I randomly flipped to this poem today while opening the Best Loved Poem Of The American People. I love it! From doing a little research, I learned that the author of this poem, Joseph Malins wrote this in 1913 in support of prohibition of alcohol. There is an important spiritual principle that I see illustrated in this poem. We need to have some fences or boundaries in our lives when it comes to living for God. Some things need to be “off limits”, because they are just not good for us and can cause us to “fall off the cliff” and lose out with God. I’m thankful for men of God that have preached the Word and helped me to see areas in my life where I needed to put up a fence. Like the saying goes, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”
Fence or Ambulance?
